In some respects, yes, but it's classic Abbey in-your-face confrontation. He would have stared down Cesar Chavez and called him a greasy wetback taco-bender or publicly called Jesse Jackson a white wench chasing nigger. Then he would have waited for a logical rebuttal. No personal offense meant on his part, but no remorse either. You were either in the game to defend your arguments, or you were just a useless spectator.

I sorta think of him as Socrates with hemmorhoids and a bad attitude. He certainly tore me a couple of new a$$holes.

Let me try to capture a few errant memories while they are semi-fresh. I believe this took place in early 1977.

Maybe five or six of us are sitting at a table with Ed in a Mexican restaurant/bar in Globe, Arizona. The beer has been flowing quite freely for hours. It is maybe 3:00 am and Ed is still conducting the grand inquisition. The latest additions to the party are two Maricopa County sheriff's deputies who came in to end the party at 1:30.

Ed has just exposed a young JackelopeBreeder as an intellectual light-weight and is waiting for a reply. Half of an expensive cigar is poking out of the left side of his face. He has his arms crossed over his chest with a beer mug in his right hand and a cheap felt hat pushed back to expose most of his bald spot. The Cheshire Cat never had a grin that big.

Fair enough.
